Teen Takeover 2017

In 2017, the September issue of the Bedford Clanger will be written and edited by Bedford’s teenagers as we throw open our pages to the Teen Takeover.

The Clanger team will collaborate with teens to decide the editorial content and allocate assignments.  The Teen Takover team will commission photography and artwork from their peers and work closely with our designers and editor to create the finished publication.

In January and February we will host workshops to encourage as many teens to take part as possible.  We want to reflect the issues and aspirations of Bedford’s under 20s, plus showcase their opinions,  talent and ambition.

In early January we will publish a programme of workshops and the only barrier to attending is your age. If you are 13 – 19, please get in touch!

If you are a teen – or you know a teen who would like to take part – please email thebefordclanger@gmail.com with Teen Takeover as the subject heading.   We’d love to hear from students, apprentices, teen mums and dads, carers, volunteers, artists, photographers, writers, illustrators, designers plus teachers, youth workers and lecturers.

If you would like to advertise in the Teen Takeover issue or discuss sponsorship opportunities, please contact Julia bedfordclangerads@gmail.com
